    Unaccommodating accommodation”

    Definitely not booking this place again. I chiefly liked this hostel for its Lavender location when I first stayed here in May, but I really regretted my second stay the other day (booked as Reddoorz here in Agoda but is actually one and the same establishment) when I experienced firsthand how unpleasant this hostel could treat its customers. Apparently, this accommodation has an inhospitable policy (not clearly stated in their listing, voucher or even in the hostel entrance) of not permitting booked guests to stay in the premises, even the reception area, before your check-in time of 2pm and check-out time of 12pm. I arrived 9am and, upon arriving at this hostel, wanted to catch my breath after the overnight bus ride from Kuala Lumpur and lugging my bags up the narrow staircase, as well as connect to their WiFi to send important messages. The rude receptionist, however, insisted that I leave the premises immediately after dropping my large bags. I understand that reasons why one shouldn’t loiter for hours on end outside check-in hours, but to disallow an incoming guest from staying for a while upon arrival and use the WiFi is just outright inconsiderate — especially when such a rule is not explicitly and clearly declared beforehand. I immediately left a negative review on their Facebook page, which the social media manager — instead of simply addressing my feedback and settling matters professionally — reposted it as a screenshot in their feed in retaliation and to reiterate their unreasonable policy. I wanted to book another hostel. But I returned in the afternoon, and decided to still stay because I was really exhausted from the bus ride and meetings all day. The following day, as I was lounging in the common area, the very same rude receptionist kept leering at me, as he was passing back and forth.

    Very good value!”

    Had a good stay here. Location is right next to Lavender MRT so you can get anywhere quickly. Clean overall. Basic breakfast (white bread, peanut butter etc, no toaster though). Wifi connection was a bit up and down. Sometimes ok, sometimes quite unresponsive. Got a good deal for three night so overall great value.

    Good Location - Near at MRT”

    PROS: Comfortability - Clean Bed + Aircon ( no time limit) can give you a comfortable during your stay at Gusti. Location - Very accessible because it is near at Lavender MRT. Fairprice, 7-11 and hawker are just around the corner. Breakfast - Bread with choices of jam, margarine and peanut butter. (suggestion to gusti , hope they can provide a bread toaster too, as what other hostels have as well 😅) Drink : Tea or coffee 👍 CONS: My request for last night of stay was not granted. From second floor where I stayed, I was transferred to shift at third floor as the bed was occupied already by other guest. But as I checked the bed (second floor), there was no one there yet. The television at second floor doesn’t work. Overall, staying at Gusti is still recommendable.

    Great value but kettle is health risk”

    The hostel is good value for money and in a good location, right by the metro. There were two things that bothered me that lowered my review of the facilities. One is that I saw photos of a toaster online in the breakfast setup. In reality, there is no toaster. Just raw bread. However, that's small. It's a discount place. What's unacceptable is that the kettle in the kitchen is balanced on top of an upside bowl because the power cord isn't long enough to reach the socket. I watched someone trying to put the kettle back and knock it over due to the recklessly stupid setup. It spilled and boiling water hit the foot of another guy that was preparing his breakfast. It's fine to cut corners due to being cheap accommodation, but that's just unacceptable. At the very least use a wide flat surface like a food storage container. That's my reason for 1 star on facility.

    Simple ”

    check-in time is 2 pm & check-out time is 11am (very strict)!After check-out you are not allowed to take shower again (very strict) . The bed and the room is okay.But I think with the money you pay hey should at least maintain the toilet and shower equipment well!!! The "living room" is big but not enough seats and furnitures ( photos u see online might took many years ago lol).The location is good only few minutes to Lavender MRT.Anyway...back to the money you paid and the value of this hostel made me a bit disappointed!Coz they don’t think for the clients! If they charge u less than 12sgd I think it’s okay for hostel in sg but if it’s more than that you need to compare with the other hostels in sg.

    Weird experience”

    The location is good, the rooms are not extraordinary but decent clean. The cover is very thin though so it can get cold, and it's never changed. They could install some privacy curtains. The breakfast is very basic, just bread and margarine with some jam, and the bathrooms rather disappointing. But the experience over all was very weird, thus I would not recommend to stay in this hostel, especially if you're a single white female. It's full of old weird Asian people who stare at you as you walk to your room or to the bathrooms, and who pray even late at night on the corridors, making it very creepy. I respect all the religions and your right to practice it, but keep it private, don't make the others feel uncomfortable.

    The Cleanest and Most Spacious Hostel in Singapore”

    We were group of 5 students stayed at Gusti for 12 Nights . The Experience with Gusti made our stay more Memorable. It is just 2 minutes walk from Lavander MRT , which connects straight from Airport. The check inn is very smooth. The eight room drom is spacious and bed and linen are very clean and tidily made up. The mattresses are comfortable . The is big living room in every floor very good to socialize with other fellow travelers from around the World. This much big common space is hard to find in Any hostel in South East Asia. The Kitchen and dining room are very tidy and with all basic amenities .Breakfast is basic with Tea,coffee, butter , jam and bread. There is seven eleven and fair price store down stairs and burger king and MacD . Also there are various food options avaiabel witih in 2 minutes walking distance. The best part ho Gusti is its hygiene , cleanses and its very spacious which are very hard to find in mostly Singaporean Hostels.

    Decent hostel in an expensive city”

    Singapore is an expensive city. This is a decent hostel located near the MRT line. As you expect from a hostel, it has bunk beds and showers. I wasn't sure what the breakfast was supposed to be, but I did see free tea and make-your-own toast. This isn't really a party hostel or a place to meet a lot of people. Perhaps being spread across several different stories and not having a single, primary common area contributes to that. It is a fine place to stay if you're coming to SG with your own friends, though. Of course, if you're coming to SG with a partner, you can get a hotel room together for ~SG$50 / US$40 at Fragrance. The hostel was clean and everything worked.

    Value for Money, Good Location, Clean, Staircase.”

    1. Clean , 2. Good Location, 3. Value for Money

    I stayed there during the Chinese New Year 2015 (4 Nights) 1. Location - It's 5 minutes walk from the nearest MRT Station (Lavender) which is also the same train line as the Changi Airport which is very convenient. There's ample of restaurant nearby to go for an eatery. There's also a supermarket nearby which is also convenient to get your necessity. 2. Value for Money - I pay RM600 for 4 nights for 2 persons. So do your own calculation (exchange) if you are not from Malaysia. 3. Rooms - I stay in a room with 8 beds (4 sets of bunk bed). Only bed are provided in the room with mattress and blanket. Behind the bed linen is a sheet of plastic covering the mattress. It does not bother me but it may be some problem for some. The room is air-conditioning. 4. Toilets/Shower - Towels are not provided, need to pay extras for towel. (We bought ours so i'm not sure how much towel rental cost). Bring your own toiletries as they only provide shampoo/bodyshampoo liquid combination. Water Heater is available. 5. No elevators. - Need to be mention for those who are travelling with Heavy Baggage. The reception is on the 1st story. The room might be 1-4 storey height of staircase walkup. So if you have a bad knee/leg, i suggest other place. This would required abit of exercise to go up. I saw a few elderly persons have a very terrible experience climbing up the stairs with their luggage. Just a thing to point out. 6. Breakfast - Breakfast of tea, coffee, bread, toaster and bread spread are provided on every floor which is convenient. Microwave and Fridge are available but only on the 1st floor. Would prefer if the breakfast have more options like eggs and cooking options. 7. Amenities - TV are provided on every floor. Cable TV on 1st Floor. - Wireless Internet are available. - Locker Box available outside the room (Lock not provided) - Board Games are provided. - Reading Material are provided. - Lack of staff. Hope this helps everyBody.
